What is your dream occupation?
I'm living it... I have always wanted to be a mother, and to work with kids. Not only do I homeschool my own children, but I also volunteer with preschoolers on a weekly basis.
What is your favorite activity or hobby?
I enjoy reading, handcrafts of all types, container vegetable gardening, and the occasional writing contest.
What makes your hometown special?
That would be the Twin Cities... Minnesota; land of beautiful lakes, breathtaking fall colors & fairy-frozen winters, and several dozen art museums & theatres.
What would be your dream vacation?
Colorado is one of my current favorite haunts, but my husband & I are planning to visit Ireland, Scotland & Wales for a month on our 25th anniversary. That's the vacation I dream of!
What is your favorite or best feature in or of your closet?
For me, it's been simply seeing all my clothes in a single glance. That has helped me realize that "Gee, I really DO wear all neutrals!' and to begin changing that.
What is your favorite outfit in your closet?
Probably the one I'm about to make next... I like creating new combinations better than repeating any one look.
What is your craziest thing/outfit in your closet?
Definitely my bright orange/yellow vest. It was purchased for a costume, but I've fallen in love with it & am trying to find an outfit to support it's vibrancy so I can wear it "for real" as well.
If you were given the opportunity to have a famous designer revamp your entire wardrobe, who would you choose?
I'm not sure I could choose one... I prefer to change with my mood! I love the look of everything at soul-flower.com however.
Who are your favorite artists (painters, writers, musicians etc.)?
I feel inspired by Hannah Hurnard, and Corrie Ten-Boom... and admire the talents of Edmund Leighton, and John Waterhouse.
What is your favorite classic movie?
The Princess Bride... I've loved it since I first saw it, as a little girl of 12
What is your favorite magazine?
Real Simple - for their DIY projects!
If you could have a dinner party and only invite 5 people who would they be?
Friends from my church... though I'd have to hold several, to include them all!
What is your greatest accomplishment and why?
That would be my children. I never thought that I'd be teaching them myself, but somehow they've managed to survive... and thrive!
